I have been creating a few paper patchwork art pieces and just LOVE the Hexagon punch.
I used the Calendar Papers that were available in last years Christmas mini catalogue. They are all gorgeous patterns and just looked like a patchwork to me!
This is a selection of random patches glued to cover a card base, then I have run the entire piece through the Bigshot with an embossing folder to give it that depth of texture and make it look like a fabric patchwork . The white mat frame was too stark so I have sponged this with some River Rock ink to age the look and soften the feel.
All the embellisments are Stampin' Up! with the exception of the pearl hatpin and the yellow paper rose. Regals buttons, Natural buttons, Crystal Buttons, Little Leaves Sizzlit, Seam Binding Ribbon, Tea Time Trinkets, Linen Thread, Butterfly Punch, HEarts sizzles etc
I love buttons and trinkets and had fun putting this together. Sorry about the photography - not my best skill. I have quite afew more frames to upload over the next few days - so pop back and take a peek, cheers, Liz
